    Cunningham Indexes Online

    Frances Cunningham has spent many years of her life indexing Carbon County newspapers, cemeteries, stories, and books. Special thanks needs to be given to her for all the time and work she has devoted to preserving the history of Carbon County in her lifetime. She has given me permission to add her indexes to the webpage thus making the information available to those who are searching for it. This will be a work in process.

    Included in this index are articles that are available online by visiting the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library. The library has a vast collection of "old newspapers" online. Included, so far, is the Carbon County News 1908 - 1915; Eastern Utah Telegraph 1891-1892 and 1897-1915 and The News Advocate 1915-1923 and 1925-1932. This is an excellent and very valuable project.
